Big Surprise At The End Of This Jetway
Feb. 2, 2012, Panama City, Panama: Friend and U.S. tax attorney Chris Rusch, expert on offshore structures, offshore banking, and offshore taxes, has been arrested on charges of conspiracy to defraud the U.S. IRS.
Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,
The IRS is grabbing headlines again this week. Unfortunately, this time, it's at the serious expense of a friend of mine, U.S. tax attorney Chris Rusch.
Kathleen and I spent last week with Chris in Medellin. He was a presenter at our Live and Invest in Colombia Conference. We had breakfast with Chris Sunday morning at our hotel in El Poblado, confirmed our plans to have dinner with Chris and some other friends back in Panama City Tuesday night, and then waved good-bye as Kathleen and I left for the airport. Our flight was a couple of hours earlier than his.
Early Tuesday morning we read the first press release, from Bloomberg.
